Here is tonight’s Mayor’s Report:
The Historical Society Cemetery Tour was once again a huge success. In part it was because the city’s workers pitched in to make Maple Hill look good. It is our goal to make it that presentable year-round. In that vein, I am asking the Cemetery Committee to call a meeting to examine some of the roads inside the property.
The owner of the Briarwood Hotel has paid a total of $7,735.70–but did not totally satisfy payment of owed hotel-motel taxes. They have not paid for all of 2021.
Today was Libby Lingafelter’s first day in her role as our Economic Development Coordinator and in charge of the Chamber. She will be included in a weekly meeting concerning social media and our web page with Claire Vaughan. She will also be included in a monthly meeting concerning derelict properties in town. Her first challenge will be organizing our efforts to write and submit a state grant announced last week by the Governor. We will submit to be included in the $50-million dollar Rebuild Illinois Main Street and Downtown Capital Program. We will work with merchants to develop a plan.
Fairfield firefighters had 51 total calls in August, 39 of which for EMS Assists. There were two structure fires, a cooking fire and a couple of assists to other agencies. Our firefighters trained on fire behavior and forcible entry at a burn site.
Police report five felony arrests in August with seven misdemeanors and seven warrants served. There were 11 motor vehicle crashes with 74 traffic stops and 26 traffic citations written.
With the retirement notice from Denny Mitchell in the Street and Bridge department, I decided to move quickly to post his position so bidding inside the union can run its course and Robert Kamp can start training his new team member. There are currently four members of Kamp’s department. They face a daunting task daily in keeping up with the city’s streets and bridges.
